Council builds on successes

Shropshire Council has been named Best Council for Custom and Self Builders at the prestigious 2018 Build It Awards. The council, which was put forward by a third party, beat off stiff competition from four other councils to win the prize for its work to support people wishing to build their own homes.

The Build It Awards bring together architects, manufacturers and key industry figures in recognition of innovation and excellence in the self-build sector. Robert Macey, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member for planning and housing development, said he was delighted with the recognition… “and it’s even better that someone else nominated us.

“Creating homes in which people want to live, within the area they want to live in, is extremely important to us, and self-builds and custom-builds play a key part in this. It’s a dream for many and we’re pleased to be leading the way.”
